LANGUAGE OF LOVE - for him

This week-end I read so many blogs that focused on this topic. I wrote this many years ago and hope you enjoy it!


THE LANGUAGE OF LOVE SPOKEN SO MANY WAYS,
BRINGS JOY, HEALTH AND HAPPINESS ALL OF OUR DAYS

GIFTS
MY FAVORITE CHOCOLATES YOU PICKED UP TODAY,
THE CD I SEARCHED FOR, YOU FOUND ON YOUR WAY.
THE BOOK THAT I MENTIONED YOU HAPPENED TO FIND
THE SWEATER YOU BOUGHT ME? JUST WHAT I HAD IN MIND!!
A GIFT JUST TO SHOW THAT YOU’RE THINKING OF ME.
A GIFT, GREAT OR SMALL, THAT YOU CHOSE CAREFULLY,
YOUR GIFTS SPEAK OF LOVE FOR ME THAT I CAN SEE!

SERVICE
YOU MOWED THE LAWN WHEN YOU’D RATHER BE READING
YOU FINISHED THE IRONING I WOULD BE NEEDING.
YOU WASHED THE CAR, BAKED MY FAVORITE CAKE,
PACKED UP ALL THE THINGS WE WOULD NEED FOR THE LAKE.
YOUR ACTS OF KINDNESS ARE DONE LOVINGLY,
YOU MODEL FOR ME WHAT A SERVANT SHOULD BE.
YOUR LOVE SHOWN IN DEEDS IS REAL SPECIAL TO ME!

TIME
WHEN I READ THE PAPER AND YOU JUST LET ME BE,
WHEN I WATCH THE GAME MONDAY NIGHT ON TV
YOU MAKE ALL THE SNACKS, TAKE THE KIDS AND GO OUT,
COME BACK TO A MESS AND YOU DON’T EVEN POUT.
WHEN I’VE HAD A BAD DAY, TO MY CAVE I CRAWL
YOU WAIT ‘TIL I SURFACE, AND YOU DON’T EVEN BAWL,
YOU’VE GIVEN ME TIME, THE BEST LOVE GIFT OF ALL.

TOUCH
AS YOU GENTLY BRUSH UP WHEN YOU WHISPER TO ME,
AS YOU’RE SEEKING MY HAND AND HOLD ON LOVINGLY,
AS YOU CUDDLE UP CLOSE WHEN YOU FEEL INSECURE
AS YOU LOOK IN MY EYES, OF MY LOVE TO BE SURE,
YOU RESPOND WITH SUCH WARMTH, TENDER FEELINGS AND SUCH!
THAT MY HEART SKIPS A BEAT. YES, YOU LOVE ME SO MUCH!
OH, THE WONDERFUL JOY OF YOUR LOVE GIFT OF TOUCH.

WORDS
YOU THANK ME SO OFTEN FOR ALL I PROVIDE,
YOUR ADMIRATION COULD SWELL UP MY PRIDE!
YOUR TRUST IN ME GIVES ME NEW COURAGE EACH DAY,
YOU PRAY THAT GOD’S SPIRIT IN ME HAVE HIS WAY.
YOUR WORDS HAVE THE POWER TO MOTIVATE ME,
GIVING ME STRENGTH TO BE THE BEST I CAN BE.
YOUR LOVE GIFT OF WORDS IS SWEET AS HONEY!

Without LOVE all of our gifts are useless,
whether in marriage or in other relationships.

Everyone needs to know they are loved just for everyday things, don't they? It is the everyday tasks that say "Love" more than one day in February.

Consistency. That's the key.
